Elegant salt cellars are made from construction materials


Keeping sea salt dry and flaky can be serious work in the humid Northeast. Newburyport's Culinarium has an effective, elegant, solution. Three years ago founder Jordan Castro left the construction industry and started using the materials he was familiar with to design "diminutive items for the home," as he puts it. Castro handcrafts graceful salt cellars ($34 to $68) from concrete and recycled materials in his Plum Island workshop. It's an addition to your counter worth its salt.
